save you fifteen percent or more. >>> president obama may be running the plays in a different order, but the strategy is pure kennedy, which is to say the dream lives on, the hope rises again, and the work begins anew. it is tuesday, january 22nd, and this is "now." >>> joining me today here in washington d.c. on a fancy new set, msnbc political analyst and former rnc chair the notorious michael steel. from the washington post, msnbc policy analyst, my dear friend ezra cline. washington correspondent here live in the flesh michael sharer, and our author of our divided political heart." an incredible read. washington's post columnist and msnbc contributor e.j. deon. >> great to be here. >> thanks, e.j. ronald reagan was worn some as the 40th president of the united states ushering in an era of limited government and the rise of the modern conservative movement. yesterday barack obama, the 44th president of the united states, was sworn in for his second term. the moment that will define progressive politics m years to come and one that symbolizes a renewed faith and the power of the a
believe, is how we'll achieve republican renewal. >> as president obama told the new republic this weekend, until republicans feel that there's a real price to pay for them just saying no and being ob strkzist, you'll probably see at least a number of them arguing that we should keep on doing it and facing perhaps another four years of stonewalling opposition. the president may be taking at least one tip from his predecessor. >> fool me once, shame on -- shame on you. fool me -- you can't get fooled again. >> yet -- and, yet, today a ray of hope, possibly. a day before president obama heads to las vegas to outline a proposal for imgrigs reform, democratic and republican senators will announce an immigration fix they aim to sell to both sides of the aisle. the plan includes a path to citizenship for 11 million undocumented workers along side a provision for stricter border security. jon mccain an architect of the proposal underscored the urgency in getting something done, especially for his own party. >> how can you convince republicans about the path to citizenship? >> well, look, i'll giv
support the gun safety measures proposed by president obama, and nearly six in ten voters support an assault weapons ban, including 45% of gun owning households. joining us now from washington is a survivor of the virginia tech shooting and assistant director of federal legislation for the brady campaign, colin goddard. colin, it is always great to see you. before we start our conversation, i should note we are expecting the president to announce some personnel appointments, including that of dennis mcdonough at 12:10, and we will cut to that when it happens. first, colin, you are in many ways, my friend, the star of the white house push towards gun safety reform. don't think we didn't notice when the vice president name-checked you as the president announced his proposals. as you are at the center of the beating heart of this thing, i want to know what you make of the renewed talk about the assault weapons ban. i think a lot of people thought it wasn't going to happen. the fact that the vice president brought it up yesterday, what do you give its chances in terms of actually pass
benghazi, when it initially began, was a way at getting at obama through hillary clinton, right, during the campaign, but it then evolved into something else that was about her for exactly that purpose. if the idea today was to ding her up memorably going into 2016, i don't think that was accomplished. rand paul did what he was supposed to do, it will make his base happy. it will not sway any votes. if i saw correctly, 37% of republicans approve of her. for her, that is not terrible. i mean, she has always been a pretty polarizing figure. she is leaving state department with, as you say, incredibly high approval ratings, and i don't think today did anything to change that trajectory. >> one of the pieces of sound we've played on this network and will continue to be played and will play right now, the moment hillary talks about the caskets coming home. it recalled a memory i have of the president when he was issuing the defense in the debate about how much this mattered in the administration and the contention that somehow this wasn't a big deal for them. let's play that sound, then i'd
be an obama doctrine that applies globally? >> i think it's always helpful for a president and an administration to have a foreign policy and a philosophy about how to approach foreign policy, but you are right that even the greatest enunciation of strategy can be impacted by kind of the short-term retactical challenges that you have, and a really volatile world, whether it's the middle east. i chair a subcommittee that has all the middle east and all of south and central asia. very volatile regions of the world. >> i want to play one piece of sound. i mean, as far as this being a layup, as i said earlier, it seems to be his confirmation is all but assured. senator kerry did mention the use of drones. i thought this was really interesting. let's replay the sound from earlier this morning. >> president obama and every one of us here knows that american foreign policy is not defined by drones and deployments alone. we cannot allow the extraordinary good that we do to save and change lives, to be eclipsed entirely by the role that we have had to play since september 11th. a ro
